Gluten-Free Pancakes with Caramelized Pears

This is a wonderful gluten-free Pancake recipe, and the best tasting gluten-free one I know. These gluten-free pancakes taste perfectly fluffy and soft and replace the need for any boxed pancake mix. Gluten-free ready made pancake mixes tend to be on the more costly side, but I find if you premix the dry ingredients and store them in an airtight container that it can cut the costs for expensive pre-made mixes and you actually always have ready made pancake on hand ( it’s actually an old trick I learned from Nigella Lawson’s first TV shows). I find these pancakes taste even better than regular ones. My kids love them, and I sometimes add chocolate chips into the batter for them.

I often serve pancakes with a side of fruit, just for extra nutrition. The caramelized pears are different from the usual fresh fruit I serve them with,  but perfectly compliment the buttery light softness of the pancakes. Yum!
